‘God’ Stripped From Air Force Oath





Air Force SC

 

Capitulating to the demands of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, military officials have decided Air Force recruits will no longer be required to add the phrase “so help me God” when reciting their Honor Oath.

The Air Force Academy, which requires graduates to repeat the oath at graduation, received complaints recently from the MRFF after displaying a poster featuring the entire oath: “We will not lie, steal or cheat nor tolerate among us anyone who does. Furthermore, I resolve to do my duty and live honorably, so help me God.”

When the foundation’s president, Mikey Weinstein, contacted Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson, the academy’s superintendent, he successfully prompted her to remove the ostensibly offensive poster.

At the time, Johnson confirmed the academy had “already directed the Honor Review Committee to fix this next week when they meet.”

The academy itself also released a statement, indicating it was “assessing the situation” and “working to put together a way ahead that is respectful to all perspectives.”

Contrasting the view of the MRFF, the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty came out in favor of maintaining a reference to God in the oath. To do otherwise, Executive Director Ron Crews said, amounts to “hostility toward religion.”

Under the supposed leadership of Barack Obama, the armed forces have been stripped of officers and funding while Christian faith has been under constant attack. If any group of Americans could use an extra measure of divine influence, it is the men and women fighting to preserve our religious freedoms here at home.

Instead, they are seeing any semblance of their faith destroyed and derided by an increasingly secular military.

    All of this – removing God from our Country – has snowballed since the 2008 election……why don't we do the same for muslims…….why are they allowed to pray during the government shut down…but Christians could not……..Military Priests were told they would be arrested by military police if they held mass during the shut down…….we are headed a 'the speed of light' to a socialist government without any rights granted up by God and our Constitution and NO ONE is doing anything……you will deserve everything you get…..

  2. i wouldn't want to be a pilot in the Air Force. Tell me again that obama is good for America. He hates the Living God and it should be apparent to every living soul by now.

    If you remove the part of 'So help me God', what are you affirming your oath on then? This is the whole reason for this phrase.
    So now the recruits are to just repeat words with nothing to take to heart.

    Next will be you 'Swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth', maybe. At least you hope they do.
    Your word used to mean something. Now it doesn't.

      This is very scary, if we strip GOD, what is to keep HIM from doing the same thing to us. I cannot do without HIM,myself.

      Seeks I heard he wants "So Help Me Obutthole" and as far as truth he wouldn't know it if it slapped him on those big ears or purple lips.

      • Seeks_the_truth says:

        I sure hope that's a joke.
        Don't know if I could handle him making that claim. It might force me to arrange his meeting with the real and ONLY God.

  4. This Mikey Weinstein is an atheist evil man appointed by the destroyer in chief. He is making life miserable for our Military Chaplains and harassing our Military Christians.
    This man was appointed by the demon anti God obama, this atheist Weinstein is violating the Constitutional Rights 1st Amendment freedom of speech and of Religion

    Why is this being tolerated? How can our guys be fighting for freedom in other Countries when they don’t even have it here? This unacceptable and it should not be tolerated. Our guys need to come home, the war and the enemy are here not abroad.

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      Linda being from NY you don't know any mafia people who could pay Mickey a nice social visit to show him his errant ways.By the end of the visit Mickey would be wishing for God to help him.

      • Hi Edward,
        No I don't know any mobsters, but I like your idea of divine intervention, Weinstein is pushing God's buttons and the day will come where God is going to give this guy a good swift Kick Right in his ASS and the same goes for King O.

  5. They will be sorry this action to kick our Creator out of lives happened.

  6. Edwardkoziol says:

    Look at it this way just another nail in the coffin of the USA.When people like this heb can control what is being said in an oath as a country we're in trouble.

  7. what the hell Does anyone have any Balls any more. We need to stare standing up for our self

  8. All the things this administration is doing is everything we were warned about but yet the sheeple still elected the Muslim president from Kenya. Don’t be shocked when the gas chambered are brought out.

  9. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    I have a new chant that should be sited during graduation: “Death to Weinstein, Death to Weinstein, so help me God, Death to Weinstein!”
